Health benefits of intermittent fasting (includes video story)

At a time when daily life often leads us to live at a frenetic pace and health is valued more than ever, a trend has captured the attention of many: intermittent fasting.

There are various forms. One of these is 16/8. In this method, people fast for 16 hours a day and have an 8-hour eating window.

“Intermittent fasting can give you results,” said fasting practitioner Enrique Faife. “It can be a good thing, but you have to understand your own body before you go and make such a big jump because it can be a little bit hard at first.”

Fasting can be a valuable tool in the pursuit of a healthy life, but it is not the only path. The key lies in finding an approach that suits individual needs and goals. Whatever the choice, health is a journey that deserves constant attention and care.
